TreVeyon Henderson to miss Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl vs. Georgia

Ohio State will be without another one of its best players for the matchup with Georgia in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl.

 News already made the rounds about receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba not returning for the College Football Playoff appearance due to health and NFL draft concerns.

Ohio State will be without another one of its best players for the matchup with Georgia in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl.

And now, running back TreVeyon Henderson — who has battled an injury all season long —

 confirmed on Twitter that he will not participate in the College Football Playoff semifinal.

According to a conversation with the Columbus Dispatch (subscription may be required),

Henderson injured his foot in the third game of the season vs. Toledo and tried to keep pushing through it but ultimately was “never 100%.”

 Henderson now has to undergo surgery to repair some torn ligaments in order to come back healthy next season.

Henderson entered the 2022 season as a darkhorse Heisman candidate but could never really show the explosiveness and big-play ability we saw during his freshman campaign.

 He finished the season with just 571 yards and six touchdowns after a freshman season that saw him eclipse the 1,000-yard mark.
